Cabot Trail in cape Breton , NS is hands down, the ultimate bike ride!

Mainland Nova Scotia choice; along the south shore NS ; if you start from Halifax , do the lighthouse route to Peggys Cove. Continue on to Mahoney Bay via st margrets bay road. Goes by all the beaches and is right on the water . Mahone Bay is a great stop to of the tourist cafés .
I'll be driving my Triumph along this route in August myself. Go every year!

Nova Scotia

Hi alpha99. We traveled to Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in 2009. We took the Coach and the truck across to Newfoundland via the ferry. The trick to the ferry is to disconnect the truck from the coach. We had a 40' HR and a Toyota pickup at the time. The total cost this way was only $308.50. Be sure to take the trailer hitch off the coach so you only pay for the 40' length. We cross the boarder into New Brunswick and stayed the first night in New River Beach CG which was a Provincial Park and it was a tight fit. We toured a day or so then left and went to the coast at Centry Farms CG. We stayed a couple of days then on to Hidden Hill CG then on to Seal Island/North Sydney KOA to catch the ferry the next day. Upon arriving at Newfoundland we stayed at Grand Codroy RV CG, then on to Gros Morne Campground, St Barbe RV Park and then to Viking RV Park which is at the northern tip of Newfoundland at the site of the Meadows which is where the Vikings landed. On the way back south we stayed at Ocean View CG, Kensmen Prince Edward RV Park, Arm of Gold RV Park, Baddeck Cabot Trail CG, Halifax Koa, Land of Evangeline CG @Grand Pre, Sun and Shade CG then back into the States. We had no trouble with our coach towing the truck although some of the roads had frost heaves in them and were limestoned which were rough for a little piece. The only park we had trouble getting into was the first on which was a provincial park and the sites were only 30 amp and very tight. I actually broke one of my mirrors backing into the site. All the rest of the campgrounds had 50 amp service.We stayed in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland from June 20,2009 to July 26, 2009. If I ever went back up there I would skip New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and head straight for Newfoundland. It was beautiful and laid back. Hope you enjoy you trip. Hope this helps.
